This giant AirPod works like a real one, believe it or not

Since their first edition, the AirPods Pro have been a success among Apple users, due to their practicality and increasingly better audio quality features. Thanks to their impact they have been an inspiration for several brands in the market and recently for a peculiar follower.

A few days ago Aaron B, a Reddit user shared the design of a giant AirPod Pro. This is a reproduction of a left earphone that measures no less than 10 inches and works perfectly .

As Aaron B explained in the documentation accompanying his publication on Reddit, the development of this replica required a 3D printed base , and the creation of a realistic mesh for the interior of the capsule made a basic window screen. In time, his activity resulted in approximately five hours of modeling work and another fifteen hours to print it out with a 3D printer.

Regarding the idea for the elaboration of this replica Aaron commented to Mashable:

Of the final result Aaron has defined it as “quite simple” and offered his CAD model in case someone else wants to try it out. However, the best part of this giant AirPod is that it is fully functional. Not only does it look like fun, but also it can play music via Bluetooth.

With respect to the future of this piece, and in response to comments on reddit, the creator of this AirPod has commented that intends to produce the right side at some point, but perhaps once finished it will not go any further:

What do you think of the work of this Apple fan?
